Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) recently issued Customs Notice CN12-031 to advise of changes affecting the importation of non-restricted firearms, as a result of Bill C-19 Ending the Long-gun Registry Act, which came into force on April 5, 2012.
Canadian residents importing non-restricted firearms will no longer be required to present a registration certificate for their non-restricted firearm; however licensing requirements under the Firearms Act still apply. Residents must present a valid firearms licence (Possession and Acquisition Licence or Possession Only Licence) to import non-restricted firearms.
